Willow Smith talked about the idea of having multiple partners while coming as polyamorous on the latest episode of Red Table Talk.

The singer talked to her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, on her idea of love and relationships, saying monogamy is restrictive. 

She told Will Smith's wife Jada, and her grandmother Adriene, that “antiquated” monogamy too often ends up in one partner cheating on the other and that she prefers the honesty of open relationships with multiple partners.

“With polyamory,” she said. “I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just [to be] stepping into monogamy because that’s what everyone around you says is the right thing to do."

“So I was like, how can I structure the way that I approach relationships with that in mind? Also, doing research into polyamory, the main [reason] …why divorces happen is infidelity," Willow added.

For the unversed, polyamory is described as having multiple partners with the consent of everyone involved.
